Early Tuesday morning a 6.4-magnitude earthquake hit sections of Northern California, leaving thousands without electricity, widespread damage, and at least 2 reported injured.  Over 70,000 utility customers were left without power in Humboldt County until 8 a.m. ET.  Humboldt County’s Office of Emergency Services tweeted, “Power is out across the county,” and later added, “DO NOT CALL 911 UNLESS YOU ARE EXPERIENCING AN IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY.”  The National Weather Service’s tsunami warning system said there was no threat of a tsunami.
